3. We don't need self absorbed jerks like Jackson in Congress.

He knew that he would have legal problems, yet ran against a fellow democratic Congresswoman and beat her in their primary, costing the party a good leader. Now his state has to pay for a special election.

4. He is retiring on disability

As in mental issues that are very severe...your mileage may vary.

(And yes, he should ave resigned a year ago)
